Hi, my name is Phyllis Curott and I'm a Wiccan Priestess and the founder of
the Tradition of Aura. There is no Satan in Wicca or in witchcraft or
in any of the Pagan traditions of old Europe or what we now call the Middle
East, the fertile crescent.

He is a figure of the Abrahamic traditions. He is a biblical figure. He
belongs strictly and entirely and only to the Abrahamic faiths. He is their
personification of evil.

There is no Satan in our traditions. We do not have a personification of
evil. We have an entirely different understanding of the universe as
innately sacred.

The one, there are many, but probably the single most important unifying
principle of Wicca and Shamanism and other indigenous traditions and the
many great revivals and reconstructions that are going on now under the
umbrella title of Paganism, is that they are united in their understanding
that all creation is sacred. It is innately sacred.

There is no space, there is no place, there is no existence of a
personified evil. You can say that people engage in behavior which we would
characterize as evil, but that is because they become estranged from the
sacred, because they become estranged from the divine, because they become
estranged from their own innate divinity. And our work is about restoring
that connection and healing that wound.
